Psalm 119:20 What Is Your Greatest Longing?
My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times. Psalm 119:20 Oh, that my greatest longing would be to consume the Word of God and get to Know God more and more!
Let This Be The Cry Of My Heart
What does my heart and soul continually long for? Too often it is lured to the things of this world. But there is no satisfaction there. Oh that the cry of my heart would be always be to God and His Word! The Lord longs after me all the time; oh that I would long after Him more and more. He is a true friend who never leaves us and loves at all times.
Before being concerned for other souls, I must first make sure my soul has been filled with God. God promises that those that hunger and thirst after righteousness will be filled. I want to desire His Word more than my necessary food. It is what feeds and nourishes my soul.
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psaln 63:1
Oh, write Thy wondrous law divine
Upon the tables of my heart,
That I may keep Thy statutes, Lord,
And never from Thy way depart.
Oh, may Thy perfect law of truth,
Through seasons’ change, by day and night,
Be light and life and strength to me,
My meditation, my delight.
Oh, write Thy law of holiness
In living characters of flame,
That by a life of purity
I may be worthy of Thy name.
Oh, write Thy law of tenderness
And of compassion in my breast,
Till heart and voice and hand reach out
To help the weary and distressed.
Oh, write Thy law, Thy law of love
Within me till my soul shall be,
By bonds no storm can ever break,
United to Thy flock and Thee.

May the Lord help us to daily to long for Him and consume His Word!
